eCS 2.2 transforming into Warp 4
« on: November 28, 2013, 10:09:03 am »
Hi,

as I am trying to transform eCS 2.2 to the Warp 4 look I already did this:

- Deinstallation of PNG Desktop Bitmaps via warpin (ecs.ru)
- Copying WarpD.BMP as background
- reinstalling Xworkplace 1.09 with German language files
- using Warp 4 Icon Style and Warp 4 Windows Style

-> so I do already almost have the Warp 4 look and feel.

But this things I can not overcome - is there anyone having had success with it?:

-> disable Split view for the whole WPS
-> getting back the Drive Letters in Folders object
-> changing system vide the folders view from "Standard" to something else

Thanks in Advance!

Sigurd,

  Here are a couple things you could try:

-> disable Split view for the whole WPS

  Go to 'Local System'-> 'System Setup' -> 'XWorkplace Setup' -> Features' -> 'Folder Features' and un-check 'Folder Split Views'

-> getting back the Drive Letters in Folders object

  Not sure about this one... I think it is a residue of the PNG Desktop not properly de-installed. You could try:

 Go to 'Local System' -> 'System Setup' -> 'Appearance' -> 'Icon Themes' and apply the 'IBM Merlin' theme.

-> changing system wide the folders view from "Standard" to something else

Go to 'Local System' -> 'System Setup' -> 'Workplace Shell' -> 'Folder Views' and choose the view you like under 'Default Folder View'.

Hope this helps!

Regards,

Dave McKenna

Hi David,

thank you very much, I will try these tomorrow during the User meeting  :)

On a fist look I did not find the "Folder SPlit Views" in xworkplace, may be because of turning back to 1.09?

I will report progress, Thanks again!

Sigurd,

  Make sure you have XWorkplace, not eWorkplace installed. I think the split folder checkbox is only available in XWorkplace....

eCS 2.2 added Split Views to eworkplace.
